ANGONET believes in:
- Joint strategies and efforts in addressing issues of common interests that, in principle, need a collective approach.
- Inclusive participation and involvement of key stakeholders at every stage of the project to build a sense of ownership, sustainability and ultimate realization of a common goal.
- The importance of early warning and preventive mechanisms now rather than mitigating a problem and its effect later.
- Non-competitive partnership between member CSOs and other stakeholders with an ethical agenda regarding socio-economic development.
- Accountability and transparency with spirit of volunteerism, responsiveness and real commitment to bring about required change.
- Ethics, human rights and integrity as vital elements toward accomplishments of CSOs initiatives at various levels and appreciation for positive contributions of others on the areas of mutual engagement.
ANGONET is committed to the values of:
- Accountability: ANGONET will be accountable to members, communities and donors, and the spirit of accountability will be cultivated between staff and stakeholders
- Integrity: Ethics and integrity will be exercised and practiced among ANGONET staff, donor agencies, CSOs members and other actors in development.
- Inclusive Participation: ANGONET will ensure all stakeholders are involved and participate in programme/ project design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation.
- Transparency: ANGONET will encourage the spirit of transparency among its staff and stakeholders. The spirit of transparency shall extend to activities, which altogether enhances the organizational integrity.
- Good Governance and Observance of Human Rights: ANGONET will advocate for good governance and protection of human rights to ensure equity and justice are exercised at all levels.
In recent years, ANGONET has added these additional values to its core principles:
- Empowerment: Raising voices of the voiceless through various forums at different levels.
- Integrated and Right-Based Approach (RBA): Representations, media engagement, capacity development, evidence-based advocacy and activism.
- Trickle-Down Theory: Grassroots CSOs empowered with practical and adaptive strategies to effectively deliver service and advocate for the livelihoods of the marginalized communities.
